True friends

Why is it that when you're not doing well and things are looking down, most of your so called friends and family are suddenly gone. When your life is prospering, everyone somehow finds their way back into your life?

I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem.

Good energy attracts good energy, bad energy attracts bad energy. Basically if s*** is hitting the fan you're probably feeling like s***, which tends to push other people away. The trick to life is finding the people who stick with you even through the bad energy.

That's like finding a needle in a hay stack. The needle's there but it'll be a pain to look for it. LOL.

Ever heard the expression "fair weather friends"? Its a very common phenomenon. People want to be around you when times are good/fun, when those times dry up, they move elsewhere. These are not true friends.
There is also a related non-friend group that is worth being aware of, the "foul weather friends". There are people out there who are only interested in being your friend if things aren't going well for you. If things start going well, they'll try to bring you down, or move on to someone else who is having a hard time (possibly because they get validation by helping other people).
The thing to remember is to never allow those people that abandoned you in the hard times too close again. Clearly, they can't be trusted to act in your best interests regardless of the circumstances.
And of course...seek friends with integrity!
